The BRAVER GOALS GOAL-GETTING masterclass: January 2018

A goal-getting program for women creatives who want to start their own passion projects & go after their BIG dreams


This class is for the creative woman who has big life goals, and does not want to settle for an ordinary job behind an ordinary desk with an ordinary 9-to-5 routine.

Our big goal is to be able to do what we love, and maybe... even make a living from it: as a blogger, entrepreneur, side-hustler, or freelancer.

But do you have what it takes to make that incredible passion project happen?

You've probably experienced this dozens of times, maybe even on a daily basis.

There you are, scrolling through Instagram or Facebook, when you see yet another interview or article or blog post -- about this creative woman doing incredible things, and living the dream, which is: pursuing her passion while creating a successful career.

Even if you don't want it to, a little voice sounds off in your head:
"Ah, she's amazing. What in the world is she doing right?! I've been trying my very best, but why can't I seem to get there, too?"


If you’ve been trying (maybe for years!) to:

Start/build your own blog
Publish your own book
Launch your portfolio
Start a freelancing side-business or online shop
Teach & earn from workshops
Learn Photoshop or Illustrator or video editing
Improve your lettering/painting/photography skills
and all these other creative passion projects...

...that you can't seem to find the time or motivation for.

It can get pretty discouraging to see other people who just seem to be so motivated and flawlessly succeeding at pursuing their passion, building an audience online, and knocking out life goal after life goal after life goal.

you silently and frustratedly think, as you Google article after article, devour how-to's and listicles and lifehacks and productivity tips... You try to implement some of them -- but none of it seems to work or stick!

You often end up:
overthinking, procrastinating,
and achieving a whole lot of

What are you doing wrong?
Why does it work for others...
but not for you?



  • "Maybe I just don't have what it takes."
  • "Maybe I'm just not good enough - there are so many similar people who are way more talented."
  • "I guess other people can do it because they're rich and have bigger capital. They have an unfair advantage."
  • "I guess other people can do it because they're well-connected. Unlike me."
  • "I guess other people can do that because they're not burdened with the responsibilities I have to deal with. I'm a mom/breadwinner/provider -- I don't have the same luxuries as they do."

I get it.

It's way too easy to stew in these self-sabotaging thoughts, especially when you're just going at this alone. That happened to me, too.

What you'll learn in this course

What you'll learn in this course

This course is for you if you want to:
  • Get unstuck from overthinking your life & what the heck you're going to do,
  • Move past some sort of unmotivated/lazy slump, a creative rut, or a really, really paralyzing quarter life crisis
  • Pivot your career (quit and start your DREAM job)
  • Start a side hustle/project you’re really passionate about
  • Get this idea that’s long been in your head, out into reality
  • Finally, finally, for once: COMMIT to an idea and see it through

But you REALLY struggle with:
  • Being so intimidated by this goal because it feels “too big," and "you don't know where to start"
  • Turning that idea into a plan, because “you’re not organized enough”
  • Feeling undecided about what you really want to do; or having too many ideas and being confused about which ones to pursue
  • Getting stuck scrolling through Instagram or Facebook, feeling bitter, instead of getting better
  • Losing steam or momentum or motivation somewhere down the road
  • Sticking with a project until the end



A little sneak preview of what it looks like inside the course:


What makes Braver Goals the best goal-getting bootcamp for me?

You'll get guidance with generating ideas

'Just do it! Don't be afraid to fail!' -- how many times have you heard this advice? Instead of just vaguely telling you to "make your ideas happen," this class will SHOW you exactly how. There will be brainstorming techniques (internal, and external), and fun challenges.

Learn a timeless strategy that's a catalyst for bigger things

The methods I teach are life skills that you can apply to ALL aspects of your life: It can help you become a self-starter and a leader in your work, your organization, your family, or your group of friends!

Less fluff, more implementation

My teaching style is clear, simple, practical, and very, very actionable. I get to the meat of the lesson without unnecessary noise & pomp -- because I know that you will learn best by DOING. Less info-overwhelm, more action!

Examples galore!

Most of the time, we need to see a learning concept in real life, in action, in different situations -- for us to fully understand how it works. I learn that way, too. So when I teach, I include A LOT of examples & case studies (and video walkthroughs!).

When I signed up for Braver Goals, my goal was to earn a minimum of Php15,000 in my side-business. I ended up earning Php29,970 in the final month! This is an achievement in itself, because I've never, in the last 5 years of running this biz, earned this much in just 1 month!

Another Braver Goals win for me is: After eight loooooooong years of building up the courage to begin again, I've finally launched my blog! When I finally finally finished everything last night and launched it first thing this morning, I actually cried. Even I couldn't believe I finally finished it.

I can't begin to tell you how thankful I am for joining Braver Goals last year. You have really helped me to be where I am right now. :) My overall attitude in conquering and making my plans happen have improved a lot. My organization/management and goal-setting skills have improved immensely as well.

I was able to do in 3 months, what I've been dreaming of and pushing back for the last 4 years.

When I started the Braver Goals course, I was finishing my thesis for my senior year in university. Since then, I was able to save and earn PHP 7,000+ from transcription and writing jobs, and create and share 2 song covers on Facebook! (Among many other wins!)

I think that a number of the changes that I saw in myself this year was sparked by being part of the Braver Goals community and having that accountability to action and putting my ideas out there (and not just letting them rot inside). 

The best way I can describe my Braver Goals transformation is - I went from "I can't" to "why not". I didn't realize how afraid I was or of how many limiting beliefs I had about what I could and could not do. I was basically talking myself out of the game even before I started playing (which is completely ridiculous looking back now).

I just want to say thank you so much for your mentorship & for Braver Goals, I think it really put me on a path where I actually act on my ideas and dreams. I'm so grateful.

The payoffs and results will be much, much better -- a better career, which can result to higher income, or more drive to pursue a side-hustle, which can also result to higher income.

The Braver Goals 2017 Goal-Getting Workbook
A 66-page interactive, printable workbook (PDF only)


"After the Braver Goals course, not only did I get incredible changes in mindset (I feel more empowered and inspired) - I experienced tangible transformations as well.

I now have more clarity & focus in the direction I want to steer my creative career towards. Instead of just dreaming up plans in my head, I've actually done concrete steps like holding workshops, doing designs for my next collection, finally setting up my Facebook page.

I still have a lot of things on my to do list to achieve my goals but at least now, there’s clarity of goals and intention, and there’s a detailed action plan... ALL THIS, because of our exercises and discussions with Arriane! The thought of being accountable to another person really helped me commit & follow through."

Before #90Braverdays, I was so insecure and really wondered if people will even pay me for my work. Then I just started telling people that I am selling &  offering design services and people responded.

From just an idea, I’ve started earning from my art, I’ve grown my Instagram following, and started putting myself out there a lot more.

So thankful for all the guidance, feedback & support from Arriane & the rest of the awesome girls from the course! Braver Goals was suuuuuch a great investment for my personal growth. The price is so worth it!

I've had this idea for a book for the longest time ever. When I joined Braver Goals, I decided to finally start working on this big dream of mine.

My Braver Goal for 90 days was to write 51,300 words -- so that meant writing 500 words a day.

By following the Braver Goals system... I got to 60,000 words in just 90 days! I accomplished that probably 10x faster than if I had opted out of this #90BraverDays challenge.

In the course of this challenge, I learned to just show up even when it was hard, when I was uninspired, or just plain unmotivated. I have the tools and the right mindset now. I almost feel like I can do anything!

In the beginning of the course, I felt almost out of place. I felt like I had no passions! I really had no idea what I enjoyed doing. I was interested in lots of little stuff, but nothing that felt anywhere near raring to go.

Braver Goals gave me that mindset shift - that "figuring things out" comes after trying, and not the other way around -- it got me to this passion project that I’d gladly wake up early in the morning for!

Now, I have my very own self-published book!

This is the best goal-getting course around. Why?

It's tailored just for you. I'm a creative woman entrepreneur who struggled with the exact same things, and I've worked with over 100+ women who ALSO are going through the same challenges. This was built specifically for you.

Also, my content is world-class because I am first & foremost, a teacher at heart. I am very good at developing systems, and explaining them in very understandable terms.

I also use very relatable stories & examples. Believe me, I know how useful it is to see real-life examples. That’s how we learn. That's why the missions are not only filled with action-oriented advice, but are stuffed with TONS of examples.

Stop Wasting Time. Stop Settling For Ordinary.

Stop Wasting Time. Stop Settling For Ordinary.


I’m not sure how the class can help me; I don’t understand what value it can bring to my life right now.


Goal-setting systems and strategies are not something that we are taught in school -- I think most people assume you're either born with it or not:

"I guess she's just really driven."
"I think she's just innately organized."
"She's just really business-minded... I'm not really the business type."

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

This class is about courage and freedom, at its very core.

I want to be able to empower more creative women to stop doubting themselves and just MAKE THEIR IDEAS HAPPEN -- because there are tools and workarounds to the many fears that we usually have.

I want to be able to empower more creative women with the skills and tools and systems I've personally used that has enabled me to DESIGN A LIFE where I have control over my growth. A life of growth that is creative, inspiring, meaningful, and fulfilling.

That's not something you're born with. It can be learned. And it MUST be practiced. It's a muscle that's got to be flexed, strengthened, exercised.

If you're still not sure how this class could help you, here is one success story + a few testimonials from some students in class:



When Roxanne wrote to me, she had just started her job as a service crew member in McDonald's. After a few months of wallowing in the house, he was determined to get out into the world, meet new people, and start being more proactive about her future.

She already had a blog, she knew what she loved doing (making stamps + post-crossing), but she just needed a push to get those ideas OUT INTO THE WORLD.



1) launch her portfolio/website
2) save up for a DSLR camera (in 3 weeks!)
3) launch her Etsy shop for handcarved stamps

Check out some highlights of her story below.

My personal e-mail exchanges [with Arriane] changed everything for me.

I always believed that I didn’t need these kinds of classes, and was always skeptical if this would work for me, but after years and years of failing to achieve my goals and being stuck in a rut, I finally admitted to myself that I NEEDED help, guidance and coaching.

I never had someone who I would really call my “mentor”, [and I now] consider Arriane one.

Joining your class made me realize that I, too, am capable of achieving.

[The first worksheet] most especially, got me thinking a lot. It went beyond its purpose... it actually helped me realize that it’s not impossible to achieve my goals.

This class helped me regain my self-belief, and I’m so grateful.
— Tiffany, 22, Writer, blogger, and communications manager
From being confused [about what’s next for me], I’m finally taking the initiative to start working on where I want to be, with the help and guidance of Arriane.
— Karen M., aspiring blogger and online entrepreneur
I really really want to change the pace of my life and to really achieve my goals this year — as I’m already getting old! — but I really don’t know where and how to start.

I’ve [done] self-studying and research in the past years, but it took me a lot of time to get things done, and before I knew it, another year has passed, and I still haven’t done a single thing or act on it.

I really need a mentor.
— Abi C., 26, master's student

It's ABOUT time you invested in your own growth

It's ABOUT time you invested in your own growth


You may be thinking:
"I'm still saving up money; It's too expensive for me right now."

Look. I'm sure you've spent more money on (expensive!) planners, notebooks, cute pens, stickers, Post-Its.

All these are tools, but the best and prettiest tools are USELESS if you don't have the right foundations. Invest in the most important things first.

Also, remember: Experience is a much, much more valuable investment over worldly material things. When was the last time you invested in your own personal growth & learning?

Besides, I'm really big on loyalty. I reward my community members who take the leap and join me very early on.

They're not just customers, they're kinda the people who are keeping me company as I also figure my journey out. And so I treat them as such: teammates.

That said, I'm never going to shortchange my teammates. My guarantee to them is that the price will never go lower than what they bought it at.

What this means is that THESE PRICES are the cheapest that this course will ever be:

At this price, you get unlimited access to the content for 1 whole year. You get to rewatch the videos, re-listen to the audio files, reread the texts, re-answer the worksheets.

And! If I release any bonus content in the coming months or years -- YOU WILL GET THEM.

As I continue to improve your course, you have no choice but to come along the ride with me and get all my new, and super-valuable stuff. ;) At no additional cost!

Here's a testimonial from Tiffany, who explained to me why she decided to invest in my course (she dropped a harsh-but-true truth bomb at the end):

I have to be honest — signing up for this class was a last-minute decision, mainly because I really wanted to save money. I thought, ‘Anyway, I had her free e-mail lessons. Those were enough.’

But part of me yearned to invest in MY own personal development for once.

I know I spend a lot on personal belongings, but never really about self-improvement: ‘If I get this, would it help me later in life? Will this MAC lipstick really make me a better person?”

Make time to go after the goals that truly matter to YOU

Make time to go after the goals that truly matter to YOU


You may be thinking:
"I don't have time for the course right now. I'm really busy with _____."

Be honest with yourself. Will you ever REALLY stop being busy?

After this month, there will be NEW things to be busy about, more deadlines, more e-mails, more work. There is never a time when you're not busy.

So it's your responsibility to MAKE TIME and MAKE SPACE for your own learning and growth, because who else will?! Your parents? Your boss? Your friends?

It's your growth. It's your life.

All I ask is 30 minutes of your time everyday. That's it. The course is very easy to follow, I've simplified everything, and made sure that you can complete and implement it really quickly.

And like I said, you have access to this class for 1 whole year! You can start (or re-start!) ANY TIME you want.

You can re-watch the videos anytime you want, any month or any day of the year.




Learning can happen anywhere

Learning can happen anywhere


You may be thinking:
"I'm not sure how e-courses work; maybe they’re not for me; I’d rather have a face-to-face class."

One of the best advantages of an online course vs. a one-time workshop? A one-time workshop means you only have access to the lessons for a few hours in one afternoon. After that, you're on your own, relying on your memory.

But with an online class, the lessons are available to you, any time.

This is a sample from one of my old workshops, so you can see what it looks like inside the members-only site.

And like I said, you have access to this class for 12 whole months. You can start (or re-start!) ANY TIME you want.
